06 K1200R Heated grips stuck on high hot
My 06 K12R heated grips won't shut off at the switch, Stuck on hi hot. I had to unhook the wires inside each bar switch to shut them off. I assume the problem is in the off- hi- lo switch but, There is no mention of steps to take for diagnosis in service manual. From what I've found BMW does not offer individual parts for the switch assembly. I don't want to buy a complete switch assembly they are very expensive and only the grip heat is malfunctioning. Does anyone know how to test and or fix the switch? I am going to change the bars soon too. I've read what I could find and understand being carefull not to damage the wires when removing existing grips but, don't know how to remove the grip heat sleeve without damaging it. The cover on my hazard button is damaged also. I have been looking for a set of used switches to get parts from or replace mine with. My 06 K12R has heated grips but no esa or abs. If someone knows of used switches or someone who has parts or does repairs on them please let me know.
